a little somethin...

to use a phrase that maya loves to use, oh yeah baby! i had to share the projects that dave and i worked on over 4th of july weekend. first of all, i don't know if ya'll remember this shelf...
but it got paired up with a sweet little $5 garage sale find to make this!
isn't that just the coolest shelf ever? i am soooo excited about this little puppy. who knew that it was so hard to take a piece of crap shelf then paint it white and pretty and then sand and stain it all up so that it looks all dirty and used again? oh the mind of a junk lover.
then we FINALLY got this shelf hung...
we traded this

for the shelf and clock at the dickens festival in DECEMBER! to give us a little credit, we didn't finish the room that it's in until the first of january. it also had like this nasty fake brick stuff goin on it that had to be changed out to beadboard but STILL! it's awesome though, huh? and i love what that clock says. we have a problem livin that saying sometimes in our house so i thought that it would be a nice reminder everyday. am i a mom or what?
anyways dave is yellin at me so i better go...i just wanted to share.

I LOVE that shelf!! What a great use of an awesome find!

I bought a dry sink at an estate sale this past week-end - I've been debating doing the paint, then rough it up thing to it.. this makes me want to get out the paint tonight. :-)
